Flora of Cornwall (1999)

The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Flora of Cornwall (1999), which was a Tetrad Atlas (the maps had 2km square dots or Tetrads). The map on this web page depicts the plant's distribution at the 1km square scale and shows the records made pre-2000 which were used in the 1999 Flora and those made since.

Glaux maritima - Sea-milkwort

Locally frequent, Sea-milkwort is found in the salt-marshes of every ria in Cornwall. It also occurs in brackish flushes at the base of sea cliffs, on raised beach deposits and at the mouths of streams, where they meet the sea, as at Caerthillian (SW61W). It can perhaps best be located in the salt-marshes of the Tamar estuary (SX35 & SX45).
